Bowed Dulcimer site
Hi, friends! The website of luthier Ken Bloom was, unfortunately, hacked quite some time ago. Earlier this year, a nice new site was built and here's a link to it:
There is great information on the site! If you play bowed dulcimer or are interested in taking up bowed dulcimer, I encourage you to consider attending the Pilot Mountain Bowed Dulcimer festival in April of 2016. Though I have been unable to attend for some years due to family illnesses, the Pilot Mountain fest is a good place to check out different models of instruments-- the BD community is a friendly one!
Full disclosure: I own three bowed dulcimers built by Ken. :)
